    i would be interested in formations to put wr in the qb spot. especially from pistol formatons with teams without speedy qbs. thx guys and have a nice nfl sunday.

    1. There is no way of putting a WR at QB in any pistol formation. The only formation I know you can do that in is Shotgun Heavy

  3. what is a good def to slow down the run I have been getting killed by the run.

  4. Any tips on shutting down the computers pass. No matter what D the WR always get open.

    1. The computer is a completely different animal because they know what you are doing before every play so there really is no way to trick them consistently

  5. What about the answer about the run defenses.inside runs and sweeps. You didn’t response on tips about stopping the run. Please help.I puchased your 365 yesterday and there’s not much on defenses. Thanks! Can’t afford another e-book.
